I honestly don't know why people hate on fear so much. If anything cyclones and blanket silences make me rage harder.

I'm not sure if it's intended, but can druids Cyclone you without dropping Cat Form? It's happened to me in BG's, where the druid stays in cat form, Cyclones me and then does whatever else for 5 seconds.

The instant cyclone does not break cat form I THINK.

What the hell? And people complain about Blood Fear? It costs 10% of my max health, while Druids can spec feral, get an instant Cyclone without a health cost and don't even have to shift out of form. Really Blizz?

Updated for the new Blood Horror coming in 5.2. Anyone on the PTR: is it a nerf?

Including interrupts is dumb. They do not affect Fear any more than they do any other cast. This list should include Fear-breaking abilities, but not cast-interrupting ones. They are not a Fear-specific weakness.

It'd be like saying "PALLIES GOT A NEW STUN THEREFORE FEAR IS NOW WEAKER." It's just stupid.

I agree with this.

If the list is intended to show how to break fear, then I believe the list is indeed wrong.

Where fear can be interrupted, the initial interrupt is now on CD, and fear can now be cast. Therefore, it is not a hard stop to fear.

Fear Breaking is a hard stop to fear, like berserk for druids back in Wrath. They took that away because it broke fear and too many warlocks were actually getting touched. Now warlocks can stand at max range and destroy an enemy without even getting their hem dusty.

So, that being said, if it does not break fear, it does not belong on the list and is therefore moot.

Sorry, but they stay. Fear is a casted CC, like Polymorph and Cyclone. Every single cast can be interrupted, silenced, or stunned (all of which are instant-cast). The interrupts stay.

Minor changes, including the removal of a sentence that isn't relevant at all in the current patch.

I thought this thread was going to be an analysis of the emotion. Was I ever wrong... and disappointed.
